Anyone know how to get a banner onto Digital Multiplex? or Variable Flow?

Anyone got any good suggestions as to what I could do with my alter-ego ___illyria___?

Is, as my suspicions tell me, blue and orange a hideous clash?

But...But...my new banner is blue and I want to be orange!

I don't usually put them together, but I don't think blue and orange clash. (I just don't do orange very much.)

BTW, do you know anything about .mix files. I have one from my mom that I can't open. It is one of the rare pictures of myself that I actually like.

.mix I think can be opened in PictureIt! or PhotoDraw. I have PictureIt on my laptop, or you can google for a converter.

If someone tells me how to put it up, maybe I'll just see how it looks.

I had a link to a tutorial that I can't find but try this community - recced by txvoodoo.

I don't see any orange, just blue. If you choose your shades with care, I don't forsee a problem.

Why an Ilyria LJ? She planning world domination from the interweb?

Will have to investigate that, thanks.

No orange? I've only changed one bar.

I made the Illyria LJ on a whim about a year ago. I thought I could do something amusing with it (like that Ask Illyria) but nothing came to mind.

On japewierd's com, there are instructions on how to put up banners in these links, for all the layouts. If you cant see them, just join the com and then you will be set. Lots of LJ help there.

Thanks, but bugger me. I'm not sure I want to bother now. Eek.

Haven't even decided that I want it yet!


I don't think it's that much of a clash... the single lonely bar looks a bit weird though.

As for the banner, you could try what I use for Component - I think it's standard for the different styles, but I'm not sure.

---COPY THE FOLLOWING INTO CUSTOM LAYER IN ADVANCED CUSTOMISATIONS CENTRE---

function Page::print_custom_head() {
"""
<style type="text/css">
body {
background-image: url(http://www.lookatmeimabanner.com/boo.jpg) ;
background-repeat: no-repeat ;
background-attachment: scroll ;
background-position: 50% 10px ;
# I like my banner to be in the middle and have a 10px border,
# but that’s not necessary
margin-top: HHHpx ;
# replace HHH with image height plus twenty pixels
}
</style>
""";
}

---THIS MAY GO VERY WRONG WHEN I TRY TO POST THIS... SORRY---

That went OK, actually... so if it doesn't work it's not me. ;)

The bar is just an experiment.

I'm going to have a go...

That was underwhelming. Nothing happened.

I have an error.

I got rid of error. But I still see nowt.

Oh. That looks a bit crap.

Hmm... Well, that's a bit odd. Any idea where the extra space has come from?
